ATHENS — Brock Bowers was the only Georgia player to be selected first-team All-SEC by the USA Today Network.
Fact is, there’s a strong case for Bowers to be considered the Bulldogs’ offensive MVP this season. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound freshman has been the most consistent and impactful UGA player week to week, regardless of who has been at quarterback or on the other side of the ball.
Bowers leads Georgia with 37 catches for 652 yards and 10 touchdowns. It’s the most prolific season for a tight end in the Bulldogs’ history entering into the 4 p.m. SEC Championship Game against Alabama at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Saturday.
Bowers is closing in on UGA’s single-season record for tight end catches (45) set by Orson Charles in 2011. Charles had the previous TE single-season receiving yardage record (574, 2011) en route to 1,370 yards receiving (2009-11).
Bowers’ 10 TD catches are the second-most in a season for any position at UGA, behind receiver Terrence Edwards (11, 2002).
